    Abstract  The effects of nutritional conditions on alterations in condition factor, liver-somatic index, and hepatocyte ultrastructure in the olive flounder Paralichthys olivaceus were examined. Twelve weeks of starvation significantly decreased the...

    Kainic acid (KA)-induced neuronal death is closely linked to endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and mitochondrial dysfunction. Parkin is an ubiquitin E3 ligase that mediates the ubiquitination of the Bcl-2 family of proteins and its mutations are associated with neuronal apoptosis in neurodegenerative...

    Apoptosis involves mitochondrial steps such as the release of the apoptogenic factor cytochrome c which are effectively blocked by Bcl-2. Although Bcl-2 may have a direct action on the mitochondrial membrane, it also resides and functions on the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), and there is...

    The disruption of mitochondrial function is a key component of apoptosis in most cell types. Localization of Bcl-2 to the outer mitochondrial and endoplasmic reticulum membranes is consistent with a role in the inhibition of many forms of apoptosis. In Rat-1 cells, a Bcl-2 mutant targeted...

    Thapsigargin (TG), by inducing perturbations in cellular Ca2+ homeostasis, can induce apoptosis, but the molecular mechanisms remain to be fully elucidated. We have recently reported that TG-induced apoptosis appears to involve the DR5-dependent apoptotic pathway that cross talks with the...

  • Excess iron modulates endoplasmic reticulum stress-associated pathways in a mouse model of alcohol and high-fat diet-induced liver injury. Tan, Terrence C H; Crawford, Darrell H G; Jaskowski, Lesley A; Subramaniam, V Nathan; Clouston, Andrew D; Crane, Denis I; Bridle, Kim R; Anderson, Gregory J; Fletcher, Linda M // Laboratory Investigation (00236837);Dec2013, Vol. 93 Issue 12, p1295 

    Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress is an important pathogenic mechanism for alcoholic (ALD) and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Iron overload is an important cofactor for liver injury in ALD and NAFLD, but its role in ER stress and associated stress signaling pathways is unclear. To...

    The article focuses on the study by Voeltz and colleagues regarding mitochondrial fission which occurs at the sites of endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-mitochondria contact, in which they a high-resolution of the contact sites showed that ER wraps around the mitochondria to create constrictions.

    In this study we examined the effects of high-fat diets on alterations in liver histology features and blood biochemistry parameters in blunt snout bream Megalobrama amblycephala. Fish were fed three diets containing 5, 10, and 15 % fat, respectively, for 6 weeks prior to the liver histology...
